Via leadonpurpose.files.wordpress.com

A great infographic that displays the Leadership traits of these 3 Leading CEOs.  Each CEO has a very different Leadership style from the next with a competitive and innovative approach to doing business.

An interesting activity to complete for your business is to take the Business Goals that are listed for each CEO and translate these into your work and what you are trying to achieve. To walk a short mile in the shoes of these CEOs and provide an objective look at your own goals.

1) To build a multipurpose service that everyone finds useful?

What are the steps that I am employing to ensure that my service is useful? How do I evaluate this? Does my team have ideas on how my ‘product’ or ‘service’ can be adapted or strengthened to make a difference?

2) Push Cloud Technology.

Am I working smarter? In this busy world does my team have access to critical data on the move? Is my information backed up and supported so we can become a Global player? What type of Cloud Technology will make my business react quicker?

This piece was written by Dave Copeland for Readwriteweb. There have been many articles about Pinterest but if you do nothing else, read the white paper by Engauge and report they’re referring to. It is absolutely the best one I’ve seen to date. (more details below)


The most important thing in this piece is the report, here’s what you’ll see:


A new Engauge white paper breaks down:


**the make-up of the average Pinterest user 


**shows that the end result of less reading is more of a focus on content curation than creation.


**The timing of that trend, combined with a stunning design when Internet users are focusing more on visual than text, has allowed Pinterest to explode in popularity.


This is what caught my attention – a quote from a user:

Some other key considerations to ponder are:

  • It’s not just the product, it’s the business model
  • Don’t just look to have local distribution but local developers as well
  • Growth alone is not important…
  • Note that these consumers are not gullible, they are very discerning and sophisticated consumers.

Finally, what is the marketing strategy that our business will use? Is it tailored for the appropriate audience in an emerging market, does it have the correct message?
